A sip of Borgoletto

Early evening and a slow glass of Italian ecological wine. I have finished my readings for Manchester and, as often with green political thought, it has left me with a feeling of intellectual loneliness, that everyone else has jumped on the same bandwagon and that any immanent critique of green thought has to be very carefully phrased and diplomatically delivered.

Moving outside my own discipline however, it is relieving to see that not everyone is hoping on future primitivism and pastoral dreams. On Wednesday, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva will see its first test run. At a cost of six billion euro it shows that there are still a few people out there who hold bolder dreams of the future.
